On this elections, two hundred and twenty-five members of the Fourth Legislative Yuan were elected. The outcome of the 1998 elections is that the Kuomintang (KMT) has made significant gains, holding for instance a comfortable majority in the Legislative Yuan – winning 123 seats of the total 225 seats. It marks the halting of the downward trend of popular support over recent years for the KMT, including its electoral showing in legislative elections.
